Hamming it up in Somerset - part 2

stands in a not particularly attractive village with many new detached houses seemingly dating from 1930s to 2000ish. The church is not large but has an unusual octagonal tower at the NE. The north porch shelters a Norman doorway, most else is C13-c1300 apart from a few Perp windows. Both transepts are now screened off to create rooms. All details seem totally renewed to me to the point of tedium, and there is a dearth of fittings too. The pulpit looks late C17. The best feature is the one which hasn't been recut, a small statue of St David on the shaft of the churchyard cross by the porch, but sadly very worn.
